This Monument is in Montevallo, Alabama. Lady Liberty is on the property of the American Village. I belong to Camellia Garden Club. This past Monday, we met & had lunch & a short tour though the National Veterans Shrine. It is a building patterned after Philadelphia’s Carpenters Hall. The building honors all American Veterans of all wars. Anyone can enter their families Veterans in the Register of Honor.  www.veteransregisterofhonor.com They hope to collect a huge data base full of information about each soldier.

This bronze statue of Lady Liberty was created by R. Shure in 2013.

I am going to enter my husband online. My husband was in the Army Reserves & was deployed when my son was 4 months old. My husband was one month shy of his commitment with the Army, so it was quite a shock that they sent him, to me. He returned when my son was 15 months old. To keep myself from going crazy, I spent my time painting the exterior of my house, while my baby took his naps. After he returned, his commitment to the Reserves concluded, which helped us all, because his full-time job requires him to travel a great deal.

If you are ever traveling through Alabama & have a Veteran in your family or a love of history, this is a wonderful place to visit. They have people dressed in Colonial time costumes. To find out more information… http://www.americanvillage.org
